Deep-sea fishing

All is quiet until something takes the bait. Once you feel the bite, an almighty battle begins. You grip the rod tightly! Your adrenaline is pumping! Your heart beats faster. You pull harder! You reel in even quicker! And so the battle goes on until one of you gives in. Once the struggle is over, you know that it has all been worthwhile. Your sights are already set on the next fish.

There are several marinas, mostly located in the south of the Island, where you will find a wide array of specialised boats in which to enjoy this elite international sport. The vessels are equipped with all of the tackle and crew you need for an unforgettable fishing trip.

Events:
The Island currently hosts several internationally renowned sports fishing events, including the Bertram Deep-Sea Fishing Tournament which, since 2013, is the only Spanish competition that qualifies competitors for the Offshore World Championships that are held in Quepos, Costa Rica.

You can ask a booking agency to provide you with the type of boat that best suits your needs.

The boats you can choose from are moored at: Marina San Miguel, Marina del Sur, Puerto de Los Cristianos, Puerto Colón and Puerto de Los Gigantes.
